Product Reviews for Sony PSLX300USB USB Record Turntable
from Tennessee on 6/14/2012
This is a very good turntable for the money. Plays vinyl records very well. Don't be mislead by the title, this turntable is able to play a record like normal through speakers via RCA out. However, you also have the option to convert your vinyl to mp3, etc. Sound quality is great, can't beat a good old fashioned record. Definitely worth buying!

I've only had my turntable for a couple of months, but easily converted several vinyl albums using the vinyl restoration feature in SoundForge 9.0, although some songs don't break. That's easily fixed via cut & paste into new tracks. Just make sure you save first in WAV format and then you can edit freely and save into other formats (e.g. MP3, etc.#. Still learning software, but it seems to work best via the vinyl restoration wizard. For replacement, the stylus #N-6516) part number is 9-885-117-75 and the cartridge part number is 9-885-117-76. Give Sony parts and accessories a call. I'm going to convert all my vinyl and have loads of MP3s to load on phone that are probably not even available in online stores. Wish I could sell them, but I'm sure the bad guys would call. :-)
You get what you bought!!!!!

This is a great value. I bought it for $129.99 at Best Buy. Set up is easy, but the instructions don't tell you how to listen to it while recording. Simply go to the codec and click the "Listen" tab. Click "Listen to this device" and then choose your speakers from the drop down list. Simple, but not included. My only wish is that the tone arm had a better finger for lifting and placing the arm. I also wish the RCA jacks were not hard wired into the device in case I need to replace the wires at some point.

It converts records
It doesn't do ANYTHING else..
I guess it is nice to have this as a record converter, but the fact that you can't actually listen to any records on it doesn't make any sense... I wouldn't really recommend it. Sorry Sony, but I don't like this one...

Easy to operate, fully automatic(you only have to flip the vinyl), Quick Setup
can't do scratches, poorly written instructions(luckily I have a knack for assembling stuff)
Excellent value considering all of the outputs and the preamp and also the ability to plug into computer. People complain that you can't listen to the music while uploading to your computer, making it difficult to know when to flip the vinyl. However, that's wrong. All you have to do is look at the stylus and when it comes onto the slick surface you flip the record(not that hard -_-). Warning: don't buy this if you want to learn to spin records and do scratches and stuff, it's nearly impossible to spin without touching the vinyl itself.
